#HEUNI_Tweetsday Weekly thread on Wednesdays. This month we'll reveal you the key findings from our latest project done w/@SOLWODI, @CIRRIFUGIATI, @JRSizbjeglice, @ENoMW and supported by @EU_Justice
Simple rules: 1❤– 1 finding. 1st topic: #GBV, its consequences & risk factors.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice So what are we actually looking into when talking about #GBV against women? Is there any definition? And where to find it? Check out #IstanbulConvention coe.int/en/web/istanbu… #VAW #HumanRights #ViolenceAgainstWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice #Refugee women have different backgrounds including different personal qualities, family situations, levels of education and professions. Refugee women do not form a homogenous group, and they definitely should not be seen as uninformed #victims.
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice The gender-based violence they have suffered is not caused by a single factor, but rather by a combination of several factors that increase the risk of becoming a victim of #violence. #GBV #StopVAW #WomensVoices #Refugees in #EU #EU2019FI
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice It is not useful to label some consequences of #violence as more damaging than others. Instead, it is important that you try to understand how a particular woman experiences the consequences of #violence in order to provide her with individually tailored #assistance. #Justice
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice Based on the journal data analysed during the project impunity of #sexualviolence as well as shame related to it were also push factors for women to seek international protection in the #EU. #RefugeeWomen #migration #HumanRights
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice In some cases female genital mutilation was specifically mentioned as a factor in the decision to seek refuge in #EU. In these cases, either the women themselves were afraid of being circumcised or they wanted to save their daughters from the procedure. #FGM #VAW #RefugeeWomen
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice An often-mentioned gendered push factor was #forcedmarriage. A large proportion of the women who were identified as victims of this type of #violence were either escaping the threat of forced marriage or #violence in a forced marriage. #RefugeeWomen #migration #GBV #WomensVoices
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice Women who had been forced to marry & became victims of (sometimes very harsh) #DomesticViolence, and after their decision to escape, they became victims of different forms of #exploitation during their journey to #Europe, and even in the #EU. Violence experienced form a continuum
@SOLWODI @CIRRIFUGIATI @JRSizbjeglice @ENoMW @EU_Justice Reporting violence to the police is not a primary concern of the #RefugeeWomen. In order to recover and gather courage to report, they would need #asylum, but in order to receive it, they need to tell their story of abuse. This dilemma creates a vicious circle for many of them.
